A couple of weeks ago I got to shoot with one of my favorite people- Melissa of Lissarie Photography! We shot the wedding of Amanda and Neil at Mission Beach in San Diego, which is special because it is where they met less than a year ago. They had a 10am ceremony on the sand and then a BBQ reception with just a few friends and family. I totally love this idea! Simple, cheap and meaningful.

Thanks so much for letting Melissa and me be a part of your day you two! It was such an honor to witness your love for each other- I can't wait to see what the future brings you!

Amanda said that when she met Neil she knew immediately she had met the man she would marry. There was a tattoo parlor just down the street from where they met, so a few days later she went and got the tattoo on her shoulders to commemorate meeting her future husband! Since the tattoo parlor was so close we HAD to go visit on the wedding day to say hi and get a few shots in!
